Rick Steves’ Dynamic Europe:
Amsterdam, Prague, Berlin

 

In his latest special, travel guru Rick Steves tours three of Europe’s most energetic capitals – Prague, Amsterdam and Berlin. In each city, Rick shares his valuable insights on art, culture and history, along with his practical, experience-enhancing travel advice. In Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, Rick experiences its massive castle, beloved statue-lined bridge, evocative Jewish Quarter, and thrilling 20th-century history while enjoying its infectious love of music and some of the tastiest beer in Europe. Then, he explores uniquely entertaining Amsterdam, a city filled with Rembrandts and Van Goghs, more bikes than cars, and pot-filled coffee shops. In Berlin, Rick finds evocative memorials and other reminders of the city’s 20th-century tumult, and enjoys its now-trendy east side and vibrant social scene.
